Flashing You Soon....

NOT what some of you are thinking, I'm sure...but a rare piece of flash fiction, JUST A DREAM, will be in a forthcoming collection of flash fiction called Dark Bits, from Apokrupha, the same folks who produce the very fine ezine/yearly print collection, Lamplight Magazine. Of course I'm prejudiced about that, my serial novella And I Watered It In Tears being in their first run (the free first issue is here).

And, I'm pretty happy to see my name in the same TOC as Bruce Boston, Jeremy C. Shipp, Kathy Ptacek, Willie Meikle, Bob Ford and half dozen other folks who - with myself - are starting to become a regular band of "the usual suspects."



I'm also happy because flash fiction doesn't come easily to me. I usually don't even try to write it at all, but this story just sorta "dropped in whole" in the best of possible ways: as a dream. I literally dreamed it, rolled over and woke up, then wrote it later that day. That's only happened once before, with a novella currently under consideration.  Gotta love it when that happens...
